Orange County Attorney: Traumatic Brain Injuries in Children
Compensation for Child Brain Injury Victims
Children recover from injuries differently than adults. Often, children simply recover better than adults. An injury that might have been devastating to a 45-year-old may not be quite as devastating to a 10-year-old. Unfortunately, when a child suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), there are additional challenges that arise that might not have been a factor if the victim was an adult. At Aitken Aitken Cohn, our lawyers know how to address these challenges.
Challenges in Cases Involving Children
When a child suffers a traumatic brain injury, our attorneys have to take great care to look at how it is going to impact all aspects of the child's life, from education to socialization. We have to make certain that we seek fair compensation for every way that the child has been damaged—including the negative impact on their future.
The fact that children have longer life expectancies than adults changes the way that we handle the case. If a traumatic brain injury is severe enough that it requires ongoing medical care, we need to be sure to seek compensation that covers the costs of that medical care for the rest of the child's life, which is often a significant amount of time.
All of the problems that a traumatic brain injury may cause may not show up immediately for a child TBI victim. Our attorneys are skilled in working with medical experts to spot potential problems to ensure that the compensation we seek will be sufficient to address them if they arise.
